Inside The Yacht Week

How it works

We keep saying its the best week of your life and you've chosen the destination you want to go to, but how exactly does it work? How do you select a yacht? What is a host? We clear up some common questions below, so go on - have a little scroll.

Choose a category or pick your own

Our categories

We have two yacht categories to chose from, Classic and Premium, in each yacht type, Monohull and Catamaran. Choose whichever one fits you and the crews desires and budget, and you will be allocated a yacht that fits the specifications of that category. Or if you know exactly what you want, feel free to pick your own!

Add your extras

Once you have chosen which category or yacht you want to sail, you can add on any extras to make your week exactly what you dreamt of. Here is where you can add on a host if you fancy someone cooking all you meals!
